She will make her debut appearance in the second episode of the new season.
According to the show’s executive producer Vince Gilligan, Fraser’s character, Lydia, is a former acquaintance of Giancarlo Esposito’s Gus Fring. Lydia is pivotal to how events will take shape in the season, despite being a nervous character.
Fraser has appeared on the BBC series Neverwhere and Lip Service as well as the movies Titus (1999), Vanilla Sky (2001) and A Knight’s Tale (2001).
Another new character on the show is Jesse Plemons as Todd, a young man who crosses paths with Bryan Cranston’s Walter White.
Bad focuses on White, a struggling former high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer. He turns to a life of crime to secure his family’s financial future before his imminent death.
Cranston has won Emmy awards for his performance on the show along with co-star Aaron Paul, who plays White’s former student Jesse Pinkman who helps White produce and sell crystal meth.
The fifth season begins July 15.
